The delegation had interviews with the students at XTU and were very satisfied with the students’ quality.

In response to the requirement of creativity of cultivation mode of talents by the Ministry of Education, we were trying to reform the Sino-French cooperation project, that was, to select some excellent students majoring in French from the College of Foreign Languages for professional training in economics, which could help the students to have a relatively high level of French and economics based on their outstanding performance. There were altogether 11 outstanding students selected to go to France to study in mid-August for this time.
